There are rumors on the Islamic wold that the Pope is ready to accept Israeli law on Catholic Church properties in East Jerusalem.
Palestinian officials voiced concern about possible concessions by the Vatican ahead of talks on Tuesday between Israel and the Holy See on the status of Catholic Church property in Jerusalem.
The Palestinians said a copy of an alleged draft agreement prepared for the talks, which could not be independently verified, reportedly includes an implicit recognition by the Vatican of Israel’s annexation of East Jerusalem.
Asked Monday about the meeting, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi would only say that the talks would take place on Tuesday following a previous meeting in Jerusalem in January and gave no further details.
The Vatican is reportedly preparing to accept the application of Israeli law on Catholic Church properties in East Jerusalem, which Palestinians say would be a violation of international law.
Nabil Shaath, a Fateh negotiator for relations with the Holy See, said the Vatican should “reaffirm its historic position in favour of the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights in line with international law”.
“We trust that the Holy See will clarify the situation and affirm that it will uphold its legal and moral responsibility,” he said.
The Palestinian Islamic movement Hamas which rules the Gaza Strip also voiced its “serious concern” at the reported draft agreement.
“Holy Islamic and Christian sites will remain Palestinian and Arab and that their control or their administrations will not fall into the hands of the occupier,” Hamas said.
Israel and the Vatican have been holding talks on the legal status of Catholic Church property in the Holy Land since 1999.

This article from Jordan Times brings is interesting stuff.

Could it be the acknowledgement of a special regime to be established in the Old city?
The Holy see is not interested in ruling the suburbs in East Jerusalem, which has a Arabic speaking majority. The Pope is interesting in the Temple Mount. He wants to control the very site where God the Holy Spirit was reigning in Jerusalem, and from where the “prince of peace” is coming back.
The views of the Hamas are the views of the World at large. That it is “Palestine” that shall control the Temple Mount, and the so-called holy sites of “Christianity”. This is the de facto consequence of refusing to move any embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The Western World has submitted to the Islamic demands in regards to the capital of Israel.
Jesus the Messiah is not to concerned about the ongoing political wrestling. He will come back to Jerusalem, and kill the appointed fake “prince of peace”, elected by the US, EU, UN, Russia and China, and the Pope, as the Global leader.
We know that the final antichrist is about to enter the stage in Jerusalem, and we will reject his authority and visions as falsehood. His miracles will mot impress all who know the Word of God and listen to the Holy Spirit.
